In Fallen Angel we are introduced to the Temple family through Ivy – a young woman so traumatised by her past that she has changed her identity.
She is pretty hard to like at the beginning of the story – what could possibly have made her like this?
As we get to know the rest of the family, and the layers are peeled back and the secrets are revealed, it becomes clear that Ivy had good reason to do what she did.
Told from multiple viewpoints, and with a dual timeline, the truth slowly comes to light in this expertly plotted, chilling and compelling drama; you won’t be able to put it down.
I’m a big fan of Chris Brookmyre’s witty series of novels featuring Jack Parlabane (look out for a cameo), but this character-driven thriller takes his writing to a whole new level.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy to review.
